I can wholeheartedly recommend this course not only in a professional capacity as a teacher but also in nurturing yourself as a person and in living a full, happy life for yourself. Ann-Marie is not only a wonderful course facilitator, but a kind, genuine and warm person. A personal retreat mixed into CPD!'

'The quality of content covered in this course was relevant both personally and professionally, interesting and engaging.

Thank you so much Ann-Marie for a wonderful and enriching week.'

Trish, Dublin

'I could not recommend this course highly enough. In 15 years of teahcing, it is by far the most effective and beneficial course I have ever done. In one week, I have been equipped with so many practical strategies for managing teacher stress and I in turn feel more equipped to help the children deal with their anxieties and stresses. A wonderful course with a wonderful facilitator. Do it!'

John, Dublin

'This course has equipped me with life skills for a more fulfilling life, more fulfilling relationships and a happier ME! Thank you.'

Marie, Wexford

'4 years ago, I went back to college to retrain as a primary school teacher. I studied hard, qualified with a first and was 'dipped' within 6 months of graduation. However my NQT years have been tough, the lack of job security, bouncing from school to school, endless interviews and rejection. This year, it really got to me and a friend encouraged me to take this course. It has been by far the best decision I have ever made. Ann-Marie's gentle yet practical approach guided me from a place of stress and fear to a place of strength and acceptance. Her course provided me with a range of tools to build my resilience and find a place of happiness. After nearly a year of feeling burnt out, I feel recharged and refreshed and excited about teaching again for the first time since college.'

Carla, Dublin

'The quality, content and delivery of this course was brilliant. I thoroughly enjoyed my week and have learned some valuable techniques that have helped me greatly both personally and professionally. I am confident that I have left this course a happier and self-assured person and I hope to share these techniques that I have learned with my pupils and with others.'
